A 2020 article published in Frontiers in Psychiatry by Boaden et al.: 'Anti-depressants in Children and Adolescents: A Meta-Review of Efficacy, Tolerability and Suicidality in Acute Treatment' purported to contrast the efficacy and tolerability of several antidepressants in treating children and adolescents diagnosed with different psychiatric disorders. In response to this article, we submitted a letter to the Editor of Frontiers (for publication) concerning the integrity of Boaden et al.’s analysis.
